William Lloyd Warner worked in north-east Arnhem Land during 1927-29, based at Milingimbi Methodist Mission. He became celebrated for his exposition of the system of kinship and marriage among the various clans of his so-called Murngin people. His findings stimulated the 'Murngin controversy', a voluminous dialogue to which distinguished anthropologists still contribute.
